does a commercial ogg-enabled "mp3-player" exist?

I've got an iRiver iFP390 (256Mb flash player), and upgraded the ROM to
enable ogg support. It works OK, but does chew a hell of a lot more
battery power (like it or not, ogg playback takes more processor power
than mp3 playback)! iRiver's ogg support does not extend to stuff
encoded at low bitrates though.

As far as HD based players which support ogg, I think the neuros is
meant to have a very open firmware which allows it to play ogg (and
many others besides). It is a bit of a tank though!
